Description of the Subject Land:

The land subject to these applications is located on the west side of First Street, south of Starrview Crescent, just west of Highway 10 and north of Hansen Boulevard.  The subject land is legally described as Part of Lot 3, Concession 2, Town of Orangeville, County of Dufferin, municipally known as 236 First Street.  The subject lands has a lot area of approximately 0.94 hectares (2.22 acres), with approximately 112.7 metres (369.7 feet) of frontage along First Street. The subject land is currently developed with a motel (The Maple Inn) and has a double access off of First Street.  A location map of the subject lands is attached.

Purpose and Effect of the Applications:

The purpose and effect of the applications is to convert the existing motel, through internal renovations, into 27 supportive housing units consisting of 25 studio suites and 2 two-bedroom suites.  There are no changes proposed to the overall footprint of the building.  Minor modifications to the exterior of the building, including façade improvements and new windows, are proposed.  An increase in open space area in the front of the building at the entrance is proposed together with community garden, as well as a future playground and playing field in the rear of the building.  The double access off of First Street will remain.

The Official Plan Amendment proposes to amend the existing site-specific Special Policy E8.11 to add “supportive housing” as a permitted use in addition to the retirement home use already permitted.  The underlying “Service Commercial” land use designation will  remain unchanged.

The Zoning By-law Amendment proposes to amend the existing site-specific provision 24.41 to add “supportive housing” as a permitted use, and reduce the minimum parking requirement to 38 spaces.  The underlying “Service Commercial (C3)” Zone will remain unchanged.

Information Available:
